Padang Matsirat Night Market (GPS: 6.35378, 99.73017) is one of five night markets that take place at various locations in Langkawi. This one at Padang Matsirat is held every Sunday. It occupies the parking lot of the historic Beras Terbakar site. As night falls, the parking lot turns into a large night market area.

The Padang Matsirat Night Market is a place where tourists get to observe the locals go about their daily lives. It is also a good place to shop for local delicacies, from local snacks to fruits. There are sections for food and another for clothings and toys.

My wife and I visited the Padang Matsirat Night Market together with four other bloggers when we were staying at Temple Tree at Bon Ton. We were brought to the night market by the resort manager Mr Amir to give us a taste of local life in Langkawi. We bought some fruits called bidara and ten sticks of satay, which we brought back to our hotel suite to enjoy. The satay stall was doing very good business, and we had to queue a bit before we got to buy ours. The area was congested with shoppers and tourists. Mr Amir packed the car in the parking spot of Sekolah Kebangsaan Padang Matsirat across the road.
